CONFEDERATION CALLS FOR MASSIVE DHARNA ON 20TH JUNE 2013
The 24th Conference of Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers had decided to hold parleys with AIRF and AIDEF so as to persuade them to join the struggle on common demands such as wage revision on every 5 years, merger of DA up 50% etc. There had been some informal confabulations on this line and it has been agreed that the representatives of these organisations would meet on 15th June 2013 to chalk out a common strategy and finalising a common charter of demands. But it may so happen that the meeting may be delayed.
The 24th Conference also decided to continue the struggle on the 15 Point Charter of Demands on which the Central Government employees had gone on a day's strike on 12th December 2012. The Conference called upon every affiliate and State Committees of Confederation to organise one day massive dharna on 20th June 2013 in every state capital and in every city.
CHQ of All India Audit & Accounts Association endorses the call of the Conference of Confederation and call upon on every unit to take leading part in participation as well as in mobilisation for the day long Dharna on 20th June 2013.
Confederation Circular is reproduced elsewhere.
ON RAISING OF RETIREMENT AGE TO 62
Reports say that the government of the day is serious about the raising of the retirement age. Formally, the official side is denying it. There was a move for the same in 2008 itself, but immediate change of incumbency in Finance Ministry had put a full stop to it then. The government may be feeling that the government employees could be won over with the lolli-pop of raising of retirement age without addressing any of the issues that confront the employees like wage revision, DA merger, price rise, PFRDA bill etc.
All India Audit & Accounts Association is of the firm view that any move to raise the retirement age is an affront to the unemployed of the country and it should not be done. The government may be planning to imitate the OECD countries many of which have raised the retirement age to 65 and above. Govt may be expecting to tide over the current financial crisis by delaying the payments by two years.
The move to raise the retirement age, if correct, is not only a blow to the educated unemployed but it would adversely affect the efficiency in Government offices.
